Hi All
Toad Suck Daze?!!  Where did that come from? Well, no one really knows for sure but legend has it river boat crews waited for high water at a tavern along side the Arkansas River. Folks at the time said they sucked on whisky bottles till they swelled up like toads.  The spot became known as Toad Suck and is the site of an Army Corps of Engineers Lock and Dam complex.  About 20 years ago the citizens of nearby Conway, Arkansas started recognizing the history of Toad Suck with a festival called, appropriately Toad Suck Daze. A car show is one highlight of the festival. In recent years the show has attracted 200+ cars. This year it rained. Even so, over 80 cars showed up and the event was, by any standard, a success. Letís grab our umbrellas and head on over to the Bank of America parking lot. There are a lot of really cool rides to check out. Steve!!!
